No Mercy, No Money: The history of THQ

GamesRadar - As you may have heard, THQ is no more. The once giant publisher has finally completed its long, merciless road to dissolution through a piecemeal auction that saw the majority of its remaining studios and IPs fall into the hands of its former competitors. And while the writing had been on the wall for THQ for many months prior, seeing a former pillar of the industry disappear for good can still be depressing--especially when many good peoples’ jobs disappear along with it.

So let’s pour one out for THQ, finding out just how it came to flourish and flounder in the process. Here is the history of a company that’s dead, but not forgotten. (Industry, THQ)
